In an effort to keep faculty, staff and students informed in the event of an emergency, the University of North Florida communicates important information a number of ways, including activating the Code Red Campus Alert System. This system allows the university to communicate information to faculty, staff and students via phone and text messaging. The call and text will come in from the phone number (999) 911-9999.
The Women’s Center Victim Advocacy Program provides confidential twenty-four hour crisis intervention services to members of the campus community who are victims of actual or threatened violence. Assistance is available to students, faculty and staff regardless of whether or not the incident is reported to law enforcement. Services include: Emotional support, evaluation of options, information and referrals, explanation of rights, criminal justice advocacy and accompaniment, safety planning and assistance with problems or concerns resulting from the victimization. The 24-hour Crisis Helpline is (904) 620-1010.
When an emergency occurs, the Crisis Management Team will put important information on the University of North Florida’s homepage. If the emergency is so large that the number of web site users causes the homepage to crash, web traffic will be directed to the alternative web page of www.UNF911.org.
Alertness, common-sense precautions, and concern for fellow students, faculty, and employees are keys to preventing crime and helping ensure that experiences at UNF are positive and enjoyable. The Campus Safety Guide will help you do your part to make UNF a safer campus.
Active shooter (or hostile intruder) situations are always unpredictable. Your goal should be to get away from the area and to not be visible to the shooter. Review these steps, as they may protect you if there is a shooter on campus
The Supporting Our Students (SOS) Team is comprised of faculty and staff whose role is to identify and intervene in situations involving students who may exhibit behaviors of concern. Anyone who identifies potentially disruptive or disturbing student behavior is asked to contact the Office of Student Affairs at (904) 620-2600 during regular office hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday-Friday) or Campus Police at (904) 620-2800 after hours (evenings and weekends). The SOS Team will review the situation and recommend appropriate action.
